Show me

When people see a concept presented visually, they tend to understand it in a way that goes beyond words.*
(Brian Mau)

It must be one of the oldest and most universal phrases.

I can’t see it; can you show me.

People have been drawing pictures for each other millennia.

Designer Brian Collins defines design as hope made visible.** Where there once was nothing, possibility appears.

Doodling and sketching create a conversation between the hand and the mind. First the hand draws something, the mind thinks about it and suggests tidying it up, and so on, and something takes shape.

Of course, we’re also living doodles of hope to one another.
